Hi I'm Kevin there is no fuse for warning lamp this is a separate circuit through dash pod as it's supposed to illuminate when there is any fault in airbag system . The first thing to do is plug car in and see if you can communicate with sea system .

the light is not a bulb but built in to the dash assembly like the odemoter on a ford f 150

Correct in most cases its an issue with dash pod itself and the light is part of it
